Fantasy Football Tips Gameweek 23: Midfielders
Santi Cazorla looks to be playing his way back into form, scoring both of Arsenal’s goals in the 2-0 win over Fulham last time out.
At £9.5m he ain’t cheap, but his 12 goals and 13 assists in last season’s Premier League show just how much end product you could be getting for your money.
If you want a Gunners midfielder but don’t fancy splashing out so much, Jack Wilshere is bang in form – one goal and three assists in the last three games, that’s how in form – and only costs £6.3m.
Alternatively, Aaron Ramsey is expected back at the end of the month and can be had for a potentially bargain sum of £7.1m – we need only point to the eight goals and six assists he managed prior to injury as reason enough for nabbing him early.
Down the road at Tottenham Hotspur, Christian Eriksen continued his fine run with an assist in Spurs’ 3-1 win at Swansea City – it was his second in five games, to go with the three goals he’s also managed in that time.
For £7.3m you could be really onto something with Eriksen, while for £7.2m you can have either Newcastle United’s Yohan Cabaye, who scored twice at West Ham United last time out, or Everton’s Kevin Mirallas, who’s scored in his last two.
Sunderland’s Adam Johnson will set you back £6.5m, which could turn out to be one of the bargains of the season if he can continue the form of his last two games.
Johnson followed up his hat-trick and assist at Fulham with a goal and an assist against Southampton, giving him points hauls of 22 and 13 respectively – positively Suárez-esque, that.
Crystal Palace’s Jason Puncheon could be a canny selection for the paltry fee of £4.9m – he’s managed a double-figure points haul in two of his last three games, and it could have been more had he not skied his penalty at White Hart Lane.
Palace are at home to Hull City on Tuesday, so Puncheon could again be the Eagles’ main man.
Chelsea are at home to West Ham United, but then you should know about their various midfield talents already.
One of them, Juan Mata, looks set to sign for Manchester United at the time of writing – keep an eye on that, because he’s a prolific accumulator of points when he’s first choice.
At least he was in his first two seasons at Stamford Bridge, over which time he scored 17 Premier League goals and a whopping 34 assists.
